Frank Lampard believes John Terry has all the credentials to be a successful manager in future.
Terry recently hung up his boots and is believed to be the in the contention for a coaching job at Aston Villa. The former Chelsea defender played a pivotal role in guiding the Midland giants to the playoff finals last season where they lost to Fulham by a solitary goal.
Terry was also on the wish list of former manager Steve Bruce who was sacked by the Villa hierarchy following a poor string of results. It remains to be seen whether Terry manages to grab his first managerial job or not but it seems Lampard has already given his support for his former teammate.
“Without a doubt, I think he’s said that already,
“John, in terms of character and personality, yes. I think we all know that.
“He was a leader on and off the pitch and I think he will be a leader as a coach, as a manager, whatever he chooses to do and he wants to do well.
“He is driven, he wants to learn about the game, he’s got so much experience and knowledge inside himself already.
“For sure he’ll go into coaching and management and John is one of those people I think, and there are so many variables, will make it work because that’s the type of person he is professionally.”
